We are a school of approximately 500 students, spanning grades K-5th in the Park Hill School District.  The walls of the original two-room schoolhouse are still visible in places, recalling a history of over 70 years of educating students.  Graden Hornets take pride in their achievements.  We are proud to be a 2000-2001 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence and a Missouri Gold Star School in 2000-2001 and 2002-2003 and most recently earn Lighthouse Status through the Leader in Me Program with Franklin Covey organization in May 2014.
